This message has reached me from the infinite cyberspace that is the interweb:
A Helsinki CD-R label 267 lattajjaa
( http://www.saunalahti.fi/~hhaahti/267lattajjaa/ )
is seeking for contributors to a Sigue Sigue Sputnik
tribute album, to create a cover version of their legendary
1986 hit 'Love Missile F1-11'. Any musical style OK.
If interested, contact: hhaahti(AT)dlc.fi
More info about Sigue Sigue Sputnik:
"Sigue Sigue released their first single, the classic 'Love Missile F1-11' in 1986. It climbed to number two in the British charts. 'Love Missile F1-11' was number one in 15 countries for at least one week. The single, as well as the album that followed, was produced by Giorgio Moroder. The band auctioned advertising spaces between the tracks on their first album 'Flaunt It' (released in 1986)."
Now, how cool is that?! that Sigue Sigue Sputnik were like the coolest band in a world for a moment and I still have their second 7" single "21st Century Digital Boy" which I bought from the music department of the Stockman department store in Tapiola, Espoo, when it came out in -86, obviously I was quite young at the time... But I loved it and I am not ashamed to admit that. Sure, they looked weird, even weirder, but at the same time also super dope, just look at that synth guitar!!! The music is kinda crap but still, if you are ready to go all out like they did, you just gotta respect that.
Anyway, some of us Kriton Boys and our friends are going to do our very best and to contribute a version of F1-11 for the tribute album. Watch this space!
UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!! UPDATE!!!
If yo'all wanna hear some peek previews of what's gonna be on the comp, go to our friend Mr. Sandal Flamenberg's MySpace and listen to his 'stoner-pop' rendition of the F1-11 Love Missile in his MySpace-player thingy. It like totally rRRRocks, dude!
